@Jw1724:  It depends. If I go in and the office shuts early, then I don’t have to use vacation time. If I leave early or call out, then I do have to use my time.

No, because my company has laptops so I can work from home when it’s stormy!

For the most part, everyone at my company can work from home, but if you can’t for whatever reason, you have to use your own time.

Probably… my old boss used to let us work from home no problem, but she left and they didn’t replace her and now I report diretly to the company VP who “doesn’t believe” in WFH. So now if I did get stuck at home, I’m not sure if she’d make an exception or make me take PTO. Luckily when it snows here it doesn’t stay long.

I don’t understand why ther are making you use PTO if the entire office is closed – it’s not YOUR fault!

Probably not, but do your labor laws have anythign to say about that?
Maybe get in touch with a local rep or something, especially if your state has a no retaliation law.
